Innovating the Prioritization of Cyber Defense

Abstract:

The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) faces a monumental undertaking in protecting the infrastructure that underpins the entirety of its operations: It must identify and prioritize key terrain  to  dynamically  defend.  This  paper  will  examine  the  criteria  to  identify  critical information systems and infrastructure, will review the process to identify key terrain in cyberspace, and will offer a recommendation on how to more effectively prioritize network defender operations using data analytics.

Efficient Remote Authentication

ABSTRACT

In 2003, Kennel and Jamieson described a method of remote machine authentication. By authentication, the authors meant that the remote machine is non-virtual, and the operating system on the remote machine is not malicious. The described method does not consider the variety of versions of each operating system. The description completely ignores the existence of modules that can be plugged into the operating system. The authors of this paper adapt the method described by Kennel and Jamieson to the real world so that it can be applied without prior knowledge of the operating system or the modules on the remote machine.
